    It looks pretty bad.

    I bathed her and cleaned her off as best as I could. Some of the yellowish white, hardened/dried material simply will not come off without me feeling like I'm pulling her intestines out. (The pics are before the bath").

    I applied hydrocortizone cream, pushed the vent back in (she pooped a very little when I did this), and then sprayed on Vertericyn.

    My first time with any of this. She is separated in a dark space with electrolyte water. IMG_20180314_100314177.jpg IMG_20180314_100309589.jpg

    Yep that's a prolapse,
    I did the same thing you did when my white cochin had this, I have to say it takes a few days of pushing it back in and even when it stayed n for a day or two, I still sprayed the Vertericyn on for a day or so after just to make sure. Once a chicken gets it, it is likely to happen again and it has, again, once for my girl but not since. It is luckily a very curable issue, your doing it right! Just keep at it, prayers to you and your girl!:hugs
